CREATA samples continued

I think is my favourite sample so far today - the blues and greys in backing paper made for an unusual colour theme but i think it works quite well - im loving all the different items i have too work with for CREATA this time all so lovely and easy to put together into beautiful cards the backing paper is from a CREATA glitter pad and ive used lots of stickers from the wedding sticker embellishments set xx the stamp is 'morehead - wedding' and i have coloured this with promarkers xx - while making this card i also thought i could enter this into sheila's challenge as its got floral elements involved xx
wow what a week ive had all 4 kiddies went back to school wednesday so we had the early week getting organised and sorting out all the uniforms and bags etc then the first few days were hectic so ive not been able to craft at all though i have managed a few mins here and there to shop for new stash haha ...

today i got a delivery from the lovely Carley Duff from CREATA for me to use to make samples for upcoming shows and a beautiful gift for me which i love love love xx thank you so much Carley for the opportunity of making card samples for you xx

even more chuffed though when after sending thank you email to Carley that i got a message back asking me if i could go to work with her at the NEC Birmingham show in November WOW!!!! of course i said yes xx after checking hubby can have time off to look after the kiddies while im away - so so excited now xx

Of course i could not wait to get started on samples so i made this card using the new 'baby' stickers and a die from a previous CREATA purchase - im loving all the new products and am looking forward to my weekend of crafting - i feel a 'Happy Bunny Dance' moment is needed im so very thankful for the chance to go to NEC and demo alongside my fave C&C girlie xxxxxxx

Wednesday, 15 August 2012

Been reading other peoplesblogs thismorning and i must say that i find mine very boring in comparison - but i guess thats due to being a genuine technophobe - oh well i will keep up the blogging when i can and will add this as i learn but to be honest i would rather be in the craftroom making the cards than in the blog writing about them - right back to reallity first the cleaning and then back to my little piece of heaven my craftting zone x x

Saturday, 11 August 2012

these are the selection of card samples i have made for CREATA as a member of their craft team they sent me some beautiful 3d paper forming flowers to work with and i had a lot of fun with them - ive used them in different ways and in different themes xx

please check out my facebook group - called CRAFT&CHAT we have lots of crafters who chat craft and share ideas - you can also buy craft items or handcrafted items or sell yours x x

hope to see you x

Ive been busy in my craft room again for CREATA this is by far my favourite of the day - my firsst try at a collective art card - using one of Carley's free downloads posted on her group wall - a few roses from CREATA 3d flower forming flowers - a free backing paper set from and some small tags cut from centura pearl card inked with distress inks - its a very diferent card to my norm but i loved making it and has encouraged me to break from my norm more often - hope you like this as much as i do x x

Thursday, 9 August 2012

Just had to share this caard i have loved making it this evening - using the brilliant Morehead CDROM by crafters companion and the stamp set - i have used Centura pearl cardstock in ivory and Coredinations cardstock in plum for the matt and layering - i picked the colours from the backing paper to colour the stamped images with Promakers on Neenah card - the purple flowers are from the embellishment section on CDROM - the dasiy border is stamped using co-ordinating stamps in the set and coloured with Promarkers on Neenah card again - i picked yellow buttons for added dimension xx i hope you like the card and hope you come back to read more posts by me in future x x

i have just finished this card using 2 new stamps from Pink Gem Designs - i have stamped the main image onto Neenah cardstock using Memento ink and the coloured with Promarkers - the back grouns i made using a backing paper from Morehead cdrom by Crafters Companion (the pinky purple paper) - i have used two wide strips of pastel pink Centura pearl cardstock edge with lace edge using an Xcut border punch - ive added matt and layering with silver paper and silver mirror board - embellished with pink 2mm gems and ivory Dew Drop's - i'm quite pleased how this one turned out as i did not use a single piece of brand new cad stock it was all offcuts from other projects x x

This is a pic of my craft desk mid craft session haha im a messy crafter but i love it x x i always tidy at the end of a session but mid-flow i just craft around it - ive been lucy enough just recently to get a cricut cutting machine so have been having a play with that quite a bit so easy to use - todays mission is to try out a few of my new stamps as they have litterally never been opened and im feeling a little bit guilty for neglecting them - i will blog the pics later - but now back to my craft haven xx

Wednesday, 8 August 2012
